Int’l Latino Book Awards Ceremony
The 23rd Annual International Latino Book Awards Ceremony
Since 1997, Empowering Latino Futures has celebrated literature through its book awards. The objective has been to recognize the greatness in both Latino writers and in non-Latinos who are writing on Latino topics. In 2007 the Latino Book Awards were renamed International Latino Book Awards. Up to date, 3,194 authors and publishers have been honored over the years. In 2020, 297 authors were recognized in 96 book categories. Categories include Children’s, Young Adult, Nonfiction, Fiction, Design, Translation, and Best First Books. While 85% of our winners are not yet well known, the awards have proven to be an appropriate launching pad for the next generation of authors who work with smaller publishing houses.
This 2021 the Awards Ceremony will be streamed on Zoom and live-streamed to YouTube, Facebook, and on our website www.LatinoBookAwards.org
